Tonight Atlanta chillwavers The Midnight brings their epic and hyper evocative synth drenched electronic jams to the Town Ballroom with local support from Armageddon Party. The Midnight is total collaboration featuring Atlanta singer songwriter Tyler Lyle and Danish producer Tim McEwan that results in something like aural virtual reality: hazy, ephemeral synthetic atmospheres that fully immerse the listener in a timeless past while offering a deep, soulful connection via Lyle’s clean, big eyed alto vocals. There’s also some trenchant and meaningful social critique of the gauzy, almost addictive nostalgia they and their audience are swimming in and of the simultaneously connected and disconnected dystopia America is descending into, so that’s nice, and you can dance to it.
Opening the show will be local electronic mayhem gurus Armageddon Party. Doors are at 7pm and tickets at the door are $20.
